Will, Prominence Management Group’s CEO, was born in Boston, MA, and grew up in Newton, MA. From an early age, Will was a dedicated sports enthusiast, competing across the country in baseball, basketball, golf, and a range of other disciplines during his formative years. The skills and team ethos gleaned from these early experiences have helped form his work ethic and devotion to the team mentality. Majoring in English at the University of Arizona, Will’s drive and energy helped him establish himself as a leading student, and it is this focus that has carried him through in his business career.
According to Will, these experiences have all be immensely helpful in shaping his perspective on management and leading a team to success. “In sports the people who lead by example gain respect; it is the same in business. I knew in order to become a great leader I needed to lead with my actions. Working in teams helped me appreciate the value of collective effort, and learning everyone needs to be on the same page has helped shape how I view management today. I also learned to be competitive and how vitally intense it is. Next level leaders are capable of developing other leaders and replicating themselves. These are the principles I have gained from my life experiences to date, and I try to inspire these same ideals in my team for collective success.”
Prominence Management Group’s employees have taken these lessons and inspirational words from their CEO, putting them into practice to deliver the most effective results possible for the team and the individuals engaged in it. The company was voted one of the top marketing companies in the Greater Houston area in a poll run by the Houston Chronicle, an immense achievement in a highly competitive market.
With such a strong team in place, a spokesperson for the company said ongoing success seems inevitable. “This year, we are putting a lot of focus in helping our team members accomplish their career goals just like Will has. They do this by developing themselves and pushing personal boundaries. Over the next five years, we are aiming to introduce more new leaders to the field, where they can continue to grow and develop as business leaders. We want to see them running their own offices, which in turn will pave the way for Prominence Management Group to reach new territories and expand into multiple markets. Our CEO almost took a job in corporate America, but he knew he wanted more and he was fuelled by the desire to guide his own destiny. This is the opportunity we give each of our team members.”
Prominence Management Group CEO Shares Secrets to Career Advancement
As part of Prominence Management Group’s commitment to consistent and continued growth, both in the business and in the individuals on the team, the company’s CEO frequently coaches the group with wisdom on how to progress to management at a faster rate. “The first thing I tell people is to act the position they want. If you want to be a Manager, act like one now – that way, you’ll be ready to rise to challenge when the time comes. It all comes down to creating an exciting workplace environment, and that rubs off on our campaigns. Acting in a business-like way from the earliest possible stage in your career means you’ll progress at a much faster pace toward the lifestyle and the career you know you are capable of.”
Team members who join Prominence Management Group have the chance to learn and train on the job, studying entrepreneurship and business management skills to help them move forward in their careers. This is accomplished through the company’s Management Training Program, a career development strategy that stems from the CEO’s desire to help his team members reach their entrepreneurial potential. New team members have the chance to progress in a supported, mentored work environment designed to encourage a rapid pace of professional growth toward management.
“My philosophy is that you need to have a vision of where you want to go and what you want in life - to grow you need a plan and a method for execution. There is no such thing as realistic. The great part about life is you decide what you’re capable of and your motivation is what will decide how much or how little success you’ll achieve in life. I believe that good things will always happen to good people who go about life the right way, and that’s the kind of vision I inspire in my team,” said Prominence Management Group’s CEO.
